Going on safari is an experience of a life time. We at Wild Times are committed to make it the best possible one.
Wild Times specialises in organising tailor made safaris
Wild times organises tailor-made safari in Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Botswana, Malawi, Namibia, South Africa, Zambia and also in Asian countries, like India, Sri Lanka, Vietnam and more. The safari possibilities within East and Southern Africa are enormous. Kenya alone has over thirty different game parks and hundreds of lodges, private camps and tented camps. When you don’t know all the options, it is almost impossible to find the parks and lodges that fit you best. The sequence of parks and camps together with ways of transport can make or break a safari. We like to help you making these difficult but lovely choices.
Well-balanced variety of parks and lodges
Another advantage of booking through our office is that we are independent. We don’t own lodges or conservation areas so we are free to send you wherever seems best for yóu. When you deal directly with one specific chain of lodges, you will most probably be sent to all their lodges in the various parks. No problem of course, but we feel it is nicer for you to also experience some variety in the type of camps you will stay. It’s so great to get a feel of these different styles that are around.
Up to date information
All African countries are changing constantly. Lodges come and go. Some might loose their finishing touch while others improve. Working in the safari business in Africa means that we need up-to-date information about what’s going on. Who’s got the best offers, what are the best places to stay, the best roads, airlines etc. And all this information is so very important when we plan your safari.
